Left-hander Haris Sohail knocked his maiden one-day century to guide Pakistan to 280-5 in the first day-night international against Australia in Sharjah on Friday.
The 30-year-old made 115-ball 101 not out in his comeback match after returning home from the South Africa tour with a knee injury last year, lifting Pakistan to a fighting total in their 50 overs. (Pakistan vs Australia, 1st ODI: LIVE UPDATES)
Pakistan, having rested six of their key players including regular skipper Sarfraz Ahmed to give them break before the ICC World Cup 2019, won the toss on a flat Sharjah stadium pitch.
Haris, who reached 1,000 runs in his 27th one-day international when on 40, added 98 for the third wicket with Umar Akmal who made 50-ball 49 in his first international match for two years.
